I think my computer ma have a virus, someone told me if I run my recovery dvd-rom that came with the computer this will get read of it, is this true? I don't have any photos or music stored on it. Thanks Sammy.
Buy or download a free virus protection package and run it. This will detain any virus you may have and will keep you virus free from then on. AVG free is a good freebie one and Kaspersky is a good one that costs money.
If you're not worried about losing any pictues, videos, music etc... yes, using the restore cd will completely reinstall Windows and guarantee you are free from infections. Anit-virus software is not a guarantee but it's a better alternative to try first if you have files you want to save.
